Visit to the dentist for vaccinated – no express test

It is expected that the government’s decision regarding the timetable for citizens’ visits to the dentist will change again. Without a rapid test, fully vaccinated individuals will be able to visit the dentist.

The Greek Ministry of Health is obliged to provide a negative test result for Covid-19 for both vaccinated and unvaccinated patients. The measure will also be applied to those accompanying the patient to the dentist.

Today’s plenary meeting of the expert group dealt exclusively with the issue of providing diagnostic tests for coronavirus even to those who were vaccinated during a visit to the dentist.

According to Newsbeast, it is expected that the expert’s proposal on this issue will completely solve the problem, since there have been many controversial reactions from both dentists and vaccinated patients.

Recall that on Tuesday, the Ministry of Health issued clarifications about timetable for visiting the dentist*. But now, apparently, it will be canceled.

The Greek Ministry of Health is obliged to provide a negative test result for Covid-19 for both vaccinated and unvaccinated patients. The measure will also be applied to those accompanying the patient to the dentist.

Vaccinated patients and accompanying persons will have to show a negative rapid test result (10 euros), and unvaccinated patients – a negative molecular PCR test (60 euros).

According to a ministry decree published in the Official Government Gazette on September 12, 2021, the following documents apply to visits to hospitals, clinics, doctors, diagnostic centers and rehabilitation centers:

Patients who go to a public or private medical facility for examination are not subject to laboratory testing for covid-19. Patients who go to a public or private healthcare facility for an invasive examination or test that uses their breath are subject to laboratory testing with a rapid test within 48 hours of the examination. Fully vaccinated health workers undergo a rapid test within 48 hours before entering a public or private facility.

Unvaccinated patients undergo molecular testing (PCR) within 48 hours prior to admission to a public or private facility. How reportedly Konstantinos Kogias, President of Thessaloniki Dental Association, has confirmed the changes and requirements for the Covid test.

Cancellation of the above government decree

The Commission of Epidemiological Experts and Authorities recommends not requiring citizens who have been vaccinated against coronavirus any diagnostic tests to visit a dental clinic.

As officially reported, the dentists themselves presented evidence that the problem of transmission of the virus during the treatment procedure has already been solved (how exactly remains a mystery).

Vaccinated patients and accompanying persons will have to show a negative rapid test result (10 euros), and unvaccinated patients – a negative molecular PCR test (60 euros).
